“the average male figure skater does 3 quads in their free skate” factoid is actually a statistical error. American figure skater Nathan Chen who does 10,000 quads in his free program is an outlier and should not have been counted
SARAH KERRIGAN, PRIMARY ANTAGONIST AND OCCASIONAL PROTAGONIST OF THE “STARCRAFT” FRANCHISE, WAS ORIGINALLY ONLY SUPPOSED TO APPEAR IN ONE LEVEL. AS SHE WAS INITIALLY INTENDED AS A THROWAWAY CHARACTER, HER NAME WAS SELECTED FROM A BIG NEWS STORY AT THE TIME: TONYA HARDING’S ATTACK ON AMERICAN FIGURE SKATER NANCY KERRIGAN. HOWEVER, THE GAME DEVELOPERS GREW ATTACHED TO KERRIGAN AND DECIDED TO EXPAND HER CHARACTER.
Born October 24, 1994, Krystal Jung (also known as Jung Soo-Jung) is a Korean-American singer, actress, and figure skater, and member of f(x). There are #4,751 gifs listed in this directory, with the most recent hunts near the bottom. [updated Sept 08 2016.]
Stiles had two favorite things about the Olympic Village: the fruit bowl
stocked with condoms with little miniature vaulting tables on the
packaging, and the Starbucks stands in the lobbies of every single
building and on the corner of every single street. Right now, having to
be awake and moving at five-thirty in the goddamn morning after a late
night of drinking and dancing with both the men’s and the women’s
gymnastics teams, he was especially fond of the Starbuckses.
This is American figure skater Derek Hale’s fourth Olympics, and likely
his last. And all he wants to get is that elusive gold medal. He’s
gotten silver in the last three and is hoping to finally get the gold so
he can retire happily. Stiles Stilinski is an up an coming skater
competing for Canada with a flair for the dramatics and Derek’s main
competitor. They should hate each other. But this is the Olympics. Who
knows what might happen?
AU – Derek Hale is one of the sexiest Alpha’s to be in
the Werewolf Olympics, held every four years. Unfortunately after this
last Olympics, getting only the silver medal, his partner bails on him.
In need of a partner, and being a total stubborn Sourwolf about the
whole prospect, his coach and uncle, Peter Hale decides to go in search
of one by himself. He finds Stiles Stilinski, an Omega who just so
happens to work as a Stripper at one of the best gay bars around town
and gives the boy an offer he can’t refuse. Peter figures that the
mouthy exotic dancer would be good for his nephew. However, what he
didn’t intend were for both of the wolves to not only start hating
eachother, but to also have enough sexual tension in their ire to melt
the whole planet’s ice rinks.

All these Yuri on Ice hype makes me imagine YoI RusAme like..
Imperial Ivan teaching Young Adult Alfred to Figure Skating so he could be the #1 Figure Skater in USA…or even the world..
Or you can reverse their role in modern setting with Alfred as the American pro figure skater that teach figure skating to a talented figure skater young adult Ivan, a Russian immigrant that’s raised on America since he was a child..(since personality wise Viktor is more like Alfred and Yuri is more like Ivan)

Stiles wants to win for America, okay? He wants to bone that constipated expression off of Derek Hale’s face on a bed strewn with American flags while Bruce Springsteen plays in the background and a bald eagle watches through the window with a single tear rolling down its cheek.
Stiles came to the Olympics with one goal- get a gold medal. By Opening Ceremonies, he has two goals. Win a gold medal, and sleep with Derek Hale. Unfortunately for him, those two goals are equally difficult.
The thing about gymnastics is that it’s a lot of work. And time. And busted muscles, And calluses everywhere. (Yes. Even there.) And having no social life whatsoever. All that for the distinction of being really good at gymnastics. Which does not exactly bolster Stiles’s already tenuous masculinity. The one where the teen wolfs are Olympic Gymnasts. Oops.
“As soon as Stiles found out that he could skate with the girl he had a massive crush on, he jumped for it. He figured out much later down the line that he wasn’t quite into Lydia’s type.” Stiles Stilinski and Lydia Martin are the new pair on the Olympic Ice Dancing team. Stiles already thinks he’s on cloud nine, and so snowboarder Derek Hale must be an angel.

A small chorus of cheers echoed through the audience as the Japanese team began their lap through the stadium. Such cheers would not fall on deaf ears and were met with a vigorous response from the team themselves as they began their march forward. Among them, one Hinata Hyuuga felt a small surge of pride prickle through her veins. She beamed to the spectators, walking with quick, eager steps around the arena. Her cousin, Neji, walked confidently by her side, as he carried their country’s flag, which he had specifically been chosen to hold. Behind her, she could hear a couple of her countrymen singing an off-key version of ‘Kimigayo’ whilst waving enthusiastically at the spectators. She too gave a polite wave every now and again, the flashes of light from the cameras nearly blinding her as they made their circle around the field.
She had never felt more honored than this moment. To be right here, in her very first Parade of Nations, was something Hinata had only dreamt about as a little girl. To be chosen to represent her country in the biggest competition in the world set her heart aflutter and made her feel almost faint with giddiness.
Neji noticed the sweat on her brow, and politely inquired from beside her.
“A little. But…”
“I’m very excited and very honored to be in the Olympics.”
“Aa. As am I, and I could not have asked for a better partner.”
She smiled at him. It was she who could not have asked for a better partner. Despite their rough beginnings as children, Hinata had grown very fond of her older cousin. They had become a power duo of sorts, and she was so pleased that he was by her side. She would never have been able to accomplish such a great feat without him.
She shook her head.
“I should be saying that to you.”
“Humble as always, Hinata-sama. But do not doubt yourself.”
